This prevents guessing games at the local pharmacy or beauty shop when purchasing over the counter face creams which can result in additional blemishes and have a poor reaction with the skin if proper information is unknown.
With regards to aging, there are many studies conducted in labs across the US that examine genetics to determine the life span cells in the body and how they relate to aging. For example, skin wrinkling is caused by a break down in the skin’s collagen, making the skin less elastic and prone to sagging and wrinkling. At what point does the body stop generating and begin degenerating?
At present the biological reasons for aging is unknown. Scientists agree the body begins to show signs of cellular break down through superficial signs in the skin, including age spots and wrinkles. There are three labs in the United States that focus on examining the aging process and trying to isolate which changes in genes can prolong an organisms life span. Currently these aging experiments are conducted with mice at the US National Institute for Aging, The Barshop Institute and the Jackson Laboratory and the University of Michigan.
